Consider the Mountain Guide. Mountain Guides do not climb mounts for people. Nothing is accomplished, really, if you hire me as your mountain guide and pay me to go to the summit while you watch me with binoculars from the lodge.
As your guide, I help you plan the climb. We access your readiness for the climb and what you have and need in equipment and resources. Together we determine what route to take. We plan how long the climb will take, and how to handle elements we cannot control.
When we do summit, it is your flag that is planted, not mine, for this was your journey. It was you and the mountain. Your coach was like a good solid rope - a support.

Want to run better? Try not running one or two times a week. But don't sit on the couch. Instead, cross train.
Many runners have discovered the advantages for cross training, and many training plans include an "XT" (for cross training) one or two days a week. Cross training is simply a non-running aerobic workout that is substituted for one of your running workouts. This other activity supports your running program and your overall running goals.
What are the benefits of cross training for runners?
Some cross training exercises:
If you run and train with a heart rate monitor, you can continue to use it while cross training. However, since cycling and swimming are non weight-baring, and since water in the pool with both supports your body and cool you, you will need to adjust your heart rate training zones. For biking, subtract about 10 beats per second; for swimming and pool running, subtract 15.
Whatever cross training exercise you choose, start slow. Just because you can run for an hour doesn't necessarily mean you can ride a mountain bike through the hills for an hour. Gage your endurance and fatigue, and don't go beyond your limits just because it's not running. Cross training shouldn't cross you over into overtraining.
